I would argue since it goes M—>SM—->AP—->P and for MBB EM—>AP—->P, you actually cut down a step. Their models also generally dont keep you in a role for more than 3 years (max) whereas Big4, IBM, ACN SM’s can stay SM’s for years and years and years ... And years

First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

My grandmother passed away recently, and I thought I would be very sad and cry, but I am not and I wonder if there’s something wrong with me. I was very sad and cried when she fell ill three years ago, but when she passed away I don’t think what I felt was sadness, more like emptiness... Is this normal? I’ve never had someone close to me pass away and I feel terrible because I am not crying.
